UPDATE: Combating Autism Act of 2006

Friday, January 5, 2007

Just before Christmas, President Bush signed the Combating Autism Act of 2006. On December 21st, a largely supported act that will give more money to research and education on autism was enacted. The bill authorizes nearly $1 billion for research and education on autism over the next five years, a more than 50% increase.

The bill was sponsored by Senators Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Christopher Dodd (D-CT).
